Our applications and services are declared to the French privacy controller CNIL, declaration 1818487.

Smarter Time provides you with its services under the condition that you accept the General Terms and Conditions of Use below, the purpose of which is to set the technical, practical and legal terms of our relationship. When you install Smarter Time or sign up, you confirm that you have full and complete understanding of these General Terms and Conditions of Use, which you unconditionally accept and promise to respect.

As a private individual, you therefore promise not to use Smarter Time services for business, marketing, canvassing or advertising purposes. If Smarter Time was informed in any way that the information of one of its users was the object of fraudulent use, Smarter Time reserves the right to terminate as a matter of right, and without prior warning or compensation, the subscription of the affected account, and to refuse future access to all or a part of the services available on Smarter Time to the person who misappropriated or fraudulently used that information.

Article 2 – Access Conditions

Smarter Time is not intended for and is not designed for children under 13 years of age. If you are 13 or older but under the age of 18, then you agree to review the agreement with parent(s) or guardian(s) to ensure that both you parent(s) and guardian(s) understand and consent to the agreement and that the user and his or her parent(s) or guardian(s) reviewed and accepted the agreement on the user’s behalf through the Smarter Time registration process. If the reader of the agreement is a parent or guardian entering this agreement for the benefit of a child over 14, then he or she agrees to take full responsibility for his or her child’s use of Smarter Time, including all financial charges and legal liability that such child may incur.

Within the limits of the laws and regulations in effect, Smarter Time reserves the right to terminate, without prior warning or any financial compensation, any subscription to services subscribed by a minor or a legally-incapacitated person who would have fraudulently lied about his/her age or identity.

Article 3 – Services Offered

Smarter Time provides both free and paid services.

In both cases, Smarter Time lets you enter data pertaining to what you are doing every day and, thanks to a geolocation system, to where each action takes place. Depending on your preferences, geolocation can be made approximate or more precise, so that the app can automatically infer your activities in real time.

You always keep the possibility to enter the information about your day manually.

Article 4 – Subscription to Services

4.1 – Practical Methods of Subscription

To access the free and paid services on Smarter Time, you can – or must for paid services – create an account by clicking on the link provided for that purpose and then filling in all the required fields (marked with an asterisk) in the subscription form available in our app under “Create Your Account”. If you inadvertently forget to fill in one of the fields, Smarter Time will send you an error message and require that you rectify the error.

You will then be asked to carefully read these General Terms and Conditions of Use. Check the box to indicate that you have read them and accept them.

Once these steps are completed and, if applicable, full payment is made for the relevant service, as a subscriber to Smarter Time you will have a username and password that are strictly personal and confidential and should not be disclosed to anyone. You are solely responsible for their use. As a result, Smarter Time shall in no way be held responsible for the loss of your username and/or your password.

Your password can be reset from your e-mail address, but cannot be communicated as it is not stored in clear on our servers.

4.2 – Basic and Premium services

Smarter Time offers you a reduced subset of the application features for free. To allow us to cover the cost of services, you accept that advertisements from Smarter Time’s partners may appear while you are using the app.

When subscribing to the Premium offer, which is a paid package, you unlock access to all the features and do not see ads displayed anymore.

Article 5 – Rates and Methods of Payment

All rates for Premium services include tax and the payments are processed through the Google Play Store platform.

Article 6 – Protection of Personal Data

As part of the app management, if you register, Smarter Time will collect your e-mail address in order to manage your account. We do not collect your banking information, which is processed through a dedicated system on the Google Play Store Platform.

For the app to fulfil its purpose, Smarter Time also collects information regarding your daily activities and your location. That is necessary in order to analyse your timetable and help you analyse and optimise it. All such information may be accessed by the app’s service provider, but exclusively for technical purposes, such as: multi-device synchronisation, backup, restoration, algorithm improvements or web dashboard.

Your data is stored exclusively within the territory of the European Union.

Among the locations and activities that you input, some can reveal, directly or indirectly, sensitive information such as your racial or ethnic origins, your political, philosophical or religious convictions, your union membership, your health or your sexual life. To protect your privacy, Smarter Time strongly recommends that you register such data within the field of sensitive and/or secret activities – created and provided by Smarter Time’s app for that purpose – which under no circumstances are collected by Smarter Time and will remain on your phone only. We will not know what these activities are. In the event that you prefer not to classify such activities as sensitive and/or secret but decide to register them into your Smarter Time’s app without any restriction, you will be considered as having expressly agreed that Smarter Time processes your sensitive data.

In any case, Smarter Time invites you to take all necessary security measures, such as locking your phone with an access code, in order to avoid that any unauthorised third party accesses data registered on your Smarter Time app. Not doing so is at your own risk. Under no circumstances can Smarter Time be held liable for any loss or unauthorised access to data registered on your Smarter Time app.

Smarter Time uses geolocation to guess your place and room, and to infer your activity. To maximise the app’s benefits Smarter Time recommends that you enable geolocation on your device, but you can disable it whenever you want.

Smarter Time reserves the right to use the information you provide for statistical purposes. However it will do so on an aggregated basis only, foreclosing any nominative identification for commercial purposes by any third parties, notably our business partners.

In accordance with the European requirements on data protection, you may access, modify or rectify your personal data at any time. Please contact Smarter Time at 18 Rue Taylor, 75010 Paris or contact@smartertime.com for any request. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

Article 7 – Usage statistics

As you use the app, some anonymous information – such as your Internet protocol address, usage of the application, and access times – may be passively collected and stored by us or on our behalf. To that end, Smarter Time uses the service Google Analytics and that service only. The purpose of Google Analytics is to help companies understand how users interact with their apps in order to make improving apps possible without collecting any identifiable user data.
